Book a Speaker

Is your organization looking for programming ideas that will inform and inspire your members? CBF representatives will come to your civic or community association, garden club, outdoor association, or boaters group—any gathering that is concerned about the health of the Bay.

  • What are the problems facing the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams?
  • What are the solutions?
  • What can you do to help?

Get the facts by scheduling a CBF Speakers Bureau appearance. Your organization will: 

  • Learn about the current state of the Bay and the forecast for its future.
  • Hear the latest updates on policies and legislation that will impact our lands and waterways.
  • Find out more about CBF's programs and how to become involved.

Expertly-trained CBF speakers provide non-partisan information on water-quality issues involving the Bay and its rivers and streams. They can also offer visual presentations, answer questions from the audience, and supply materials for further reading. We have speakers available in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania that will accommodate groups of ten or more people with four weeks notice of your speaking event.
